Plymouth Rock Mining Co. stock certificate 1880's (New Mexico)
Great looking mining stock cert with a nice engraved vignette of men working in a mine. Unissued and not cancelled. Circa 1880 from issued examples.
Incorporated 1879 in Massachusetts, the Plymouth Rock Mining Company held main property in the Silver Flat mining district west of Silver City, New Mexico. The mill and reduction works were located in the upper part of Silver City. Evidently the mill was poorly constructed as problems developed, causing loss in recovery of silver. In 1881, the Plymouth Rock Mining Company merged with the Massachusetts and New Mexico Consolidated Mining Company.
The company also had property situated in the Jenny Lind mining district of California - about five miles from Milton. The land was comprised of a consolidation of several claims. A ten-stamp water power mill was erected at the property and was supplied with twelve concentrators, which turned out a large quantity of concentrated sulfur.
